June 14, 2017 -- The seminar on “Building a Community of Shared Future for Mankind and Global Human Rights Governance”, co-sponsored by China Society for Human Rights Studies (CSHRS) and the Publicity Department of Tianjin and organized by Human Rights Research Center of Nankai University, was held on June 8th in Tianjin.

In the era of globalization, the interdependence of all countries is increasing despite their diversified interests. Therefore, global governance is urgently needed for the world,” said Professor Chang Jian, director of Human Rights Research Center of Nankai University.

Professor Chang talked with chinahumanrights.org after the seminar.

chinahumanrights.org: Why do we need global governance? What’s the relationship between global governance and global human rights governance?

Professor Chang: The world is witnessing both growing interdependence between nations and their diversified interests. Each country may seek the maximum of its own interests unless the global governance is put in place. As a result, Prisoner's Dilemma will come true. The global governance aims at maximizing the interests of mankind and achieving win-win cooperation by coordinating the actions of countries.
